Winter tire test: Many convince - some fail

In the new ADAC winter tire test, the majority of them scored "good" or "satisfactory".

However, there are also some failures.

Anyone who wants to buy new car winter tires for the cold season could use the latest ADAC winter tire test as a guide.

The automobile club tested a total of 33 models from various manufacturers in the small car format 185/65 R15 (T) and in the dimension 215/60 R16 (compact SUV).

In addition to a number of well-rated and solid tires, there are also some poor winter tire specimens.

Instead of just looking at the overall score, the ADAC also recommends a critical comparison in the braking distance and wear categories.

Winter tire test: Many convince - some fail

In the 215/60-R16 category, the Sava Eskimo HP2, Matador MP93 Nordica and Michelin Alpin 6, among others, are named as particularly low-wear models with mileages in excess of 40,000 kilometers.

The Coopertires WM-SA2, on the other hand, is already worn out after around 24,000 kilometers of driving, which, also due to moderate performance, takes last place in the 215/60-R16 ranking with an overall grade of 3.7.

The Dunlop Winter Sport 3 was also rated 2.1.

The Goodyear UltraGrip Perfomance+ and the Michelin Alpin 6 follow in third and fourth place, each with an overall grade of 2.3.

The Michelin Alpin 6 was also rated “good”, coming in 4th place.

The Michelin winter tire is also recommended with the second shortest braking distance - which can be easily calculated - from 80 to 0 km/h on wet asphalt.

At 37.7 meters, he was only beaten by the Bridgestone Blizzak ML005 (36.2 m), which ended up in 7th place with an overall score of 3.0.

Particularly long braking distances were measured for the Imperial Snowdragon HP (45.7 m) and Wanli SW611 (47.7 m) models.

In the overall ranking, both subjects ended up at the bottom with the grades 5.3 and 5.5.
